SAGE Acquires Royal Society of Medicine Journals Portfolio

Academic publisher SAGE announced an agreement with the Royal Society of Medicine (RSM) to acquire its journal program. With immediate effect, 28 titles formerly published by RSM Press will be published by SAGE.

The Royal Society of Medicine is one of the largest providers of continuing medical education in the U.K., reaching medical professionals and students from around the world. As part of this agreement, SAGE will begin publishing partnerships with some of the world’s most prestigious medical organizations including the Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine. SAGE will also publish the RSM’s own journals including its flagship title, the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine, one of the most widely read and enjoyed general medical periodicals in the world; JRSM has provided insights into a broad spectrum of issues for more than 200 years.

“After a decade of growth across clinical medicine, this agreement marks SAGE out as a major medical publisher,” said Ziyad Marar, global publishing director at SAGE. “The confidence of the Royal Society of Medicine in entrusting SAGE with the development of their own journals as well as several society relationships recognizes SAGE’s strengths as a collaborative publishing partner, one that is aligned with the goals of scholarship and education, and able to combine the reach of a larger publisher with the care and personal approach of a smaller press.”

The RSM portfolio publishes articles on primary research and clinical practice across a broad range of disciplines, including infectious disease, health practice, women’s health, and vascular medicine. SAGE will embark upon a program of digitizing all archives of the journals wherever possible back to Volume 1, Issue 1. Many of these digital backfiles will be made available for the first time.

Further information for all titles, including landing page and information for subscribers, can be found here.
